Assessing the Efficacy of Remediating Episodic Low pH concentrations in Headwater Brook Trout Streams with Clam Shell Additions, Maine
This project will assess if clam shell additions will increase in-stream pH and decrease organic aluminum concentrations in headwater brook trout streams in Maine. Two tributaries included in this study currently do not sustain fish, even though they contain high quality habitat for fish. The likely reason for fish absence is thought to be low pH and subsequently high aluminum. The clam shell industry in Maine currently pays for discarding shells shucked at processing facilities. If this project is successful, it would allow us to use a waste product to help remediate low pH and subsequent high labial aluminum issues in brook trout streams.

Assessment and Restoration of Southern Appalachian Brook Trout in Jocassee Gorges, South Carolina
This project will complete an assessment of brook trout in-stream habitat, water quality, and fish distribution information in all Jocassee Gorges streams during the first two years of the project. During the third year, we will conduct restoration on at least two of the top priority streams identified for restoration. Restoration will likely consist of restoring habitat using proven natural channel design techniques, removal of excessive sediments, removal of non-natives, and culminating with translocation of pure southern Appalachian brook trout from nearby streams. This will restore an estimated 2-3 Jocassee Gorges streams totaling 8 miles.

Brook Trout Restoration on the Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia
This project will install 30 in-stream structures in five streams to improve habitat in a total of 10 miles of stream in the Hiawassee, Chattahoochee, and Tallulah watersheds in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Streams proposed for structure work are Big Net Creek within the Hiawassee River watershed, Upper Chattahoochee River within the Chattahoochee River watershed and North and South Forks of Moccasin Creek and Flat Branch in the Tallulah River watershed. In addition, Walnut Fork and Tate Branch will be electrofished and all non-native trout will be removed. The project will enhance the carrying capacity of primarily southern strain brook trout streams and will restore southern Appalachian brook trout to two streams that were historically brook trout waters.

Casselman River Watershed AMD Remediation Project, MD
This project will restore water quality in the Casselman River in Maryland by constructing an acid mine drainage treatment system along affected tributaries in the watershed. Restoration of the water quality will support the biological health of the Casselman and allow the recolonization and repopulation of native brook trout to the 20 mile river.

Project PS document Creating Oyster Niche Structures through Restoration Using Crab Traps
Abandoned crab traps are a prevalent form of marine debris on South Carolina and other states’ scenic coastal shorelines, detracting from their natural beauty and posing an ecological threat. This project, lead by a team of researchers with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), led by Associate Marine Scientist, Dr. Peter Kingsley-Smith, is a progressive way to use abandoned and unwanted crab traps to create new and thriving oyster reef habitat with funding from the SARP/NOAA Community-based Restoration Program (CRP), SCDNR.

Project Troff document FISH Preserve Habitat Restoration Project
The Florida Institute For Saltwater Heritage (FISH) is restoring the “kitchen”, an important fisheries habitat for the section of shallow Sarasota Bay bottom south of Cortez. For villagers during the Depression, the kitchen provided food for the tables of their struggling families and was critical to their survival. In 1999, FISH raised money through community festivals to purchase 100 acres of environmentally-sensitive waterfront property that was slated for large scale development immediately east of the village. This historically-significant area became known as the FISH Preserve and is one of the last remaining undeveloped parcels on northern Sarasota Bay.

Project chemical/x-pdb Green River Enhancement within the Green River WMA, KY
The Green River and Green River Lake and provide aquatic habitat in the Green River Wildlife Management Area. The river is in declining condition due to severe erosion over almost four decades. Its restoration can allow it to support thriving populations of white bass, smallmouth bass, rock bass, flathead catfish, walleye, and muskellunge, and provide sport challenges to anglers.

Project Octet Stream Hydrologic restoration of coastal wetlands on North Carolina’s Albemarle- Pamlico Peninsula
This project, lead by the Nature Conservancy's North Carolina Chapter, will restore hydrology and reverse saltwater intrusion into wetlands by replacing an inadequate water control structure and plug canals in the Albemarle-Pamlico Peninsula.
